Last Week More Than 300 Fans
Took Advantage of Opportunity
To Watch Program
Broadcasting from the new studio
in Morris hall, the sixth of current
series of University of Michigan
Night radio programs will be put
on the air between 7 and 8 o'clock
tonight, through WJR-WCX, the
"Good Will Station" of the Rich-
ards Oakland company, Detroit.
Tonight's program, which will be
the second to be broadcast from the
new studio, will be open to the
public. Last week on the opening
night, over 300 visitors took ad-
vantage of the opportunity to wit-
ness the broadcast. The former
band practice hall has been com-
pletely remodeled until today the
local studio ranks with the finest
in Detroit or this part of the coun-
While the artists may be seen
through soundproof windows in
the smaller studio, their voices and
music will be presented to the audi-
ence through a receiving set lo-
cated in the auditorium. The pro-
gram is sent over long distance
phone to the Detroit studio of
WJR, and is switched from there to
the Pontiac station by another
phone., There it is put on the air
and is received back in Ann Arbor
instantaneously. Hence, the pro-
grams travel over 100 miles in go-
ing from 'the interior studio to
the adjoining room.
Cabot Will Speak
In the opening talk on tonight's
program, Hugh Cabot, professor of
surgery and dean of the medical
school, will speak on "The Sur-
geon Views the Grade Crossing Ac-
cidents." This' topic was suggested
by Roy C. 'Vandercook, of the
Michigan Railroad's Association,
for its campaign to reduce the loss
of life in grade crossing accidents.
Prof. William Herbert Hobbs, of
the geology department and direc-
tor of the University of Michigan's
expedition to Greenland, will ex-
expound his belief that the future
air route to ¢Europe will be via
Greenland. Professor Hobbs gain-
ed nationwide recognition during
the past summer when his party
rescued the Rockford Fliers follow-
ing their mishap in the wastes of
"Acoustics of Auditoriums" will
be the title of the third talk on the
program to be given by Prof. Daniel
L. Rich, of the physics department.
Professor Rich has been engaged
in extensive research in that field
and will tell of his investigations.
Program Includes Music ...
The concluding address will be
given by Prof. E. Blythe Stason, of
the law school, who will speak on
"The Liability of Passenger Carri-
ers by Motor Bus." Professor Sta-
son is probably the best informed'
man on that topic in the country
The musical part of the program
will be furnished by the University
School of Music String Ensemble
Orchestra, under the direction of
Joseph E. Maddy, head of the pub-
lic school music department of that
school. The feature artist will be

After Defeat, Smith Announces His
Decision to Nevir Again Run
For Public Office
(By Associated Press)
Closing tabulations of Tuesday's
election have continued to reinforce
the tremendous popular frte by
which Herbert Hoover and Charles
Curtis have amassed majorities in
states, having 444 electoral units
arid left Alfred E. Smith and J. T.
Robinson, leading in others with
only 87.
The late returns have served only
to emphasize the immensity of the
Republican sweep that embraced
the entire west and most of the
east and also extended in four ra-
tionally Democratic states of the
south-Virginia, North Carolina,
Florida and Texas.
Count Nears End
With less than a scattered quar-
ter of the nation precincts remain-
ing uncounted, the Hoover majority
had rolled up in 40 states. Smith
held a lead in eight others, six of
them in the south and two in the
east, Massachusetts and Rhode Is-
land. Only Alabama, Georgia,
South Carolina, Mississippi, Arkan-
sas and Louisiana, all in Dixie, re-
mained definitely under the Demo-
cratic banner. When more than
three-quarters of the popular vote
was recounted to a total exceed-
ing thirty millions, Hoover was
pulling away from Smith with a
margin of approximately 5,000,000.'
By the same mandate with which it
settled a Republican administra-
tion, the electorate likewise in-
creased that party's majority in the
two houses of Congress and gave
Republicans a lead in most of the
34 gubernatorial contests.
Following a trend established
early on election night, the Hoo-
ver advantage swung steadily along
in every section of the country. It
soon brought from Gov. Smith a
concession of his defeat, to be fol-
lowed by his announcement that
after a quarter of a century in
politics he expects never to run
for office again.
Smith Issues Statement
Expressing his gratitude to those
who suported his cause, the gov-
ernor said the "American people
have rendered their decisions; I am
a Democrat and I firmly believe in
the rule of the majority.'
At his California home Mr. Hoo-
ver relaxed to the elation of victory
and prepared an expression of his
gratitude to the public.
The strangeness of the new po-
litical map painted at the polls is
best reflected in the historical con-
trariness of the Republican vote in
the democracies of Texas, Florida,
North Carolina and Virginia and the
turn of Republican Massachusetts
and Rhode Island to the Smith
standard. Texas was a nip and
tuck battle at the outset but in the
late returns there in the three
sister states Hoover forged ahead.

witnesses of the molten torrents

had infested trees and houses and
literally eaten them up.
Maintaining a rate of more than

Michiganensian Announces November 15 Final
Date For Publication of Senior Class Pictures

Seniors pictures for the 1929

Noember 15, according to an an-
nouncement made yesterday by the
editorial staff of that publication.
After that date it will be impossible
to have pictures inserted in the

To date many who have signed for
pictures with the business staff
have failed to make appointments

appointments with photographers
to be made.

not touch the matter of SECRECY

fundamental as outlined in your

You dodge my point about instruc-

In answer to the repeated criti-
cism of Professor Van Tyne con-
cerning the proposed student sur-

statement was given out last night
by an officer of the council, as fol-
"Professor Van Tyne, in his most
recent communication, is in error
on the following points:
"1. Neither the Student Coun-
